Help my center console turned gray!!

I had the top down on my 13 vert and it started to rain. the center console got wet and left grey water spots that would not come out. I wiped down the console with a damp micro fiber cloth and the whole console turned grey! I can not get it black again no matter what I do. Anyone have any ideas what happened and what I can do to get it back to black?Name:  IMG_20170715_193011610.jpg

Did you try leather restorer?

If nothing else works order that part from the dealer.

Apply some 303 Aerospace protectant. Should return it to the original color.

Damp microfiber cloth? What was it dampened with? Looks like the dye has been pulled out of the leather. Hopefully GM isn't using a water based dye, especially in a convertible. A leather shop may be able to re-dye it back to as new, as long as the leather is still in good shape.

Try ArmorAll OUTLAST trim and plastic restorer. I used it on y sons 2003 Jeep Wrangler. It restored a rich black color to plastic bumper end caps, the bushmaster cover on the hood. Also used it on rear spare tire. Easy to use!
